when you clone the lcd on your laptop the signal that is sent to the video out is the same exact one that goes to your laptop lcd. So, expecting it to somehow end up different resolution... illogical

When you clone to an external monitor, you can change the resolution and it doesn't have to match your main monitor. skyrfox's only problem is just as scout_03 has said, his main monitor supports a maximum resolution of 1600x900. But you can have both monitors using different resolutions simultaneously.

On my HP Elitebook 8460P if I make the Laptops screen primary my LA2306x will be only display at 1600X900, but once I make the LA2306x primary is will display at 1920X1080 and the laptops screen displays at 1600X900. In short make the external screen primary.

That's odd, my mom has an HP laptop with the Intel Media Accelerator HD GPU and it can display 1920x1080 on an external tv as the secondary monitor while displaying 1600x900 on the laptop's monitor as the primary.

it has been a long time since I've tried, but clone mode is typically used when you hook up a projector and unless this was changed in win7 the resolution is the same as primary screen (I guess there's a possibility win7 finally figured out that laptop screen size is not always a supported resolution of the projector and ability to change that has been put in)

typically when you hook a monitor, the laptop recognizes that it's a monitor and just extends the desktop to it, that way you can configure in what orientation the second display is in relation to primary one and you can also change the resolutions.

Can you please confirm that it's in fact cloned instead of extended that allows to change resolution on external?

Well you may have been right in the first place. I may have made a generalized statement as now I can't even remember the last time I tried to clone. I may have been thinking about extended mode instead. So, you have my apologies as I think you may have been right in this situation.
